Schools that offer Construction Technlogies

Construction is not just about hammers and nails. The Construction Technologies program teaches that behind construction sites are professionals who understand the basic engineering principles, technical skills and business. Students in the Construction Technologies programs study not just carpentry, masonry, plumbing and heating, but also blueprint reading, cost estimating, uses of hand and power tools, cutting, fitting, fastening and finishing. Not only that, but the science behind raw materials and processes is part of this jack-of-all-trades program.
